Impresub International LCC used Tungum tube as they had good previous experience with it on their diving equipment. Results Tungum tubing is performing well with no problems. During testing it was tested at 90 barG over working pressure and 24 hours leak test @60 barG with helium with no reported problems. Positive feedback was also received on how easy the tube is to work with and assemble, and the good results achieved with the Swagelok fittings.
